The folks at Freitag are making a set of bags that are quite unique in their makeup. They're made of mostly recycled material, each have a one-of-a-kind design, and they're inflatable. Much like an air mattress, this bag uses an air pump. This bag was named ZIPPELIN, and it's just the latest in a line of rather interesting bags from the same company.

Clearly, the Everyday Backpack tapped into something photographers in particular were looking for, but as I discovered myself there's more to the bag than just that.

Manfrotto Advanced Rear Backpack Review

Manfrotto Advanced Rear Backpack Review

At this point in the relatively lengthy history of SlashGear reviewing backpacks, we've gotten to the point where we're fairly sure we've seen nearly every iteration.

When I travel, I often end up going to heavily populated areas where pickpockets run rampant. This backpack, made for your camera, laptop, and tablet, has a feature that, by definition, blocks access to its contents.

Moshi Urbana review; a modern take on the classic briefcase

Urbana. The name alone screams Moshi’s ‘briefcase’ is for the city-dwelling folks. The design suggests lawyers with ten-gallon hats won’t be buying this one, but the rest of us should take note.

Lightweight, feature-rich, and downright cool, Urbana has a little something for everyone who needs to bring it all with them.

Though many think of Moshi as an Apple-only accessory maker, Venturo is one that doesn’t fill a specific OEM niche; it just wants to be your day-to-day tech bag. Well appointed, Venturo has its sights set on the urban professional who needs to catch the train to work, but has enough bells and whistles for all.
